If you’re like us, you’re dying to find something new to listen to after all this time in quarantine. The tracks on your playlist might be stale by now, and there haven’t been many artists releasing new material over the past few months.
Instead of playing the same old songs all over again, why not take a chance to discover something new? You can do this by diving deeper into your Apple Music or Spotify stations, but how well do these algorithms actually reflect your tastes?
Wouldn’t it be better to find a music-player that will recommend songs based on the artists you like and the music scenes they’re involved in? A curated playlist can only go so far, after all.
Well, now you can thanks to Akinbeat. It’s a free music recommendation platform that shows you artists related to the name of the artist you type in.
Here’s how it works: Type in your favorite artist’s name in the white box and click “Search and Play.” On the screen that appears, you’ll be greeted to a curated playlist containing artists related to the one you searched for.
And yes, you can actually listen to these tracks to see if you like them. You won’t be able to download them to your device, so consider Akinbeat more of a research tool than a replacement for your favorite streaming service.
But unlike streaming services, there’s no monthly bill to take into account. Plus, you can run the website on your phone for on-the-go listening.
Try this site. It’s great stuff!
